Key Source of Kidney Disease in Infants And Adults

A study aimed to evaluate an array of MRI methods that exploit endogenous contrasts including relaxation rates, pool size ratio (PSR) derived from quantitative magnetization transfer (GMT), chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST), nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE), and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) for their sensitivity and specificity in detecting abnormal features associated with kidney disease in a murine model of unilateral ureter obstruction (UUO).

Gravity Affects Humans During Sleep Periods

In this study, researchers evaluated the surface of the Earth. Since a few decades, man has been able to reach space, escape from the earth attraction and spend days and nights in a weightless condition. Some major physiological changes have been observed during extended stays, and the sleep duration in space is shorter than on the ground. This study is a novel hypothesis proposing that sleep is partly due to gravity.
